Company Research: Reflections Game Studio

Reflections, a Ubisoft studio, is a video games development company based in Newcastle, UK. Collaborating with Ubisoft's international creative teams on projects such as the open-world action adventure 'Watch Dogs', MMO racer "The Crew", online open world RPG "The Division" and the latest instalment in the world's No.1 dance game franchise 'Just Dance 2014'. Reflections' objective is to combine technical expertise, flair and innovation to create and contribute to successful and memorable games, and to cement its reputation as an industry leading studio within the UK and the world.

I would love to work within the company as either environment or technical artist working with next gen tools such as the snowdrop engine. 

Watch Dogs is one of the newest titles made by the reflection studio and is one of the most anticipated games of the year, Given the time to make the game and the delays it has hopefully it will be a success. What I like and seen of Watch Dogs is its different from most games. To me it combines different genres together nicely, and videos of game play give the impression of unique game play mechanics.  

The Crew is another title made by the studio and is still in development stages, however again what I've seen of trailers and game footage it will be a huge success with car fans and racing game players. To me it brings the social side to racing games and again brings another revolutionary game play mechanic.

Tom Clancy's games have been a big part of my gaming life with the likes of ghost recon future soldier and splintercell blacklist the latest ones. But this is something I'm very much looking to get my hands on specially as it uses the new snowdrop engine and looks beautifully stunning.

The snowdrop engine is the latest in house engine being used by reflection and looks amazing. Video shows the engine in action enjoy :)
